President Klaus Iohannis sent, on Monday, a message on the occasion of the inauguration of the exhibition “Dacia – The Last Frontier of Romanity”, which he says is an exceptional cultural manifestation. He says that this exhibition will warm “the souls of the Romanians who have found their second home in Italy”.
“I welcome the inauguration of the exhibition “Dacia – The Last Frontier of Romanity”, an exceptional cultural event, to which we granted, together with His Excellency Sergio Mattarella, the President of the Italian Republic, our High Patronage. Under the coordination of the specialists from the National History Museum of Romania and through the collaboration with the Romanian National Museum in Rome, the exhibition hosted by the former Baths of Diocletian displays over 1,000 representative pieces from the heritage of 45 museum and archaeological research institutions in Romania and Republic of Moldova”, says President Klaus Iohannis in the message that was presented by presidential adviser Sergiu Nistor, on the occasion of the inauguration of the exhibition, in Rome, according to Agerpres.
The head of state shows that, for four months, the Italian public will be able to know and admire “the testimonies of an exceptional cultural synthesis in the space of the former Dacia”.
“These are the materializations of the contact between civilizations in our geographical area, a historical phenomenon lasting over 1,400 years and which led to the birth of the Romanian people, a people who found in the Latinity of their language the most appropriate name to describe their roots. The artifacts in this exhibition reveal a deeply interconnected ancient and early medieval Europe, where peoples and civilizations were in contact and often in conflict. The Romanian people are, in the end, the product of such a complex process. We founded our ethos and our national destiny through the Latinity of the language and Christian spirituality. Over time, these elements became the substance of Romania’s unity and independence. The name and the language, the spirituality and the expressions of permanence as a Latin people are our priceless heritage, but it also implies a great responsibility for all those who today take care of protecting the cultural heritage, of enhancing the treasures that we keep in our museums. It is a pride to present them to the public in Rome and not only, but also a joy to know that this exhibition will warm the souls of Romanians who have found their second home in Italy”, he says.
President Iohannis evokes the fact that Romania and Italy were, more than a century and a half ago, almost at the same time, “the fruit of the fulfillment of self-awareness” of the two peoples.
“Today we work together to develop the European peace project, to which we add, through our cultural heritage, the arguments that attest to the creative contribution of the generations that preceded us, proof of unity in diversity, which brings us closer and makes us stronger”, he says President Klaus Iohannis.
